Now that the kids have been back to school for roughly a month, we have already all been sick. How is it possible that my kids manage to bring home these nasty bugs every year like clockwork? The truth is, I hate being sick as an adult because I do not have my own mommy here to take care of me. I guess adulting is pretty hard when you are sick!
The good news is, I at least know some tips and tricks to keep my immune system in tip-top shape. I admit, I was not following my regimen and was skipping out of vitamins and healthier meals. I find the better I eat, the stronger my immune system becomes. Drinks like this Quick Organic Berry Smoothie Recipe help my body to be stronger during the cold and flu season.
Half the battle of preventing colds and seasonal sickness is to keep your body nourished, less stressed, and all around balanced. Eating clean, organic foods can help to keep one’s body fueled and in tip, top shape.
Thankfully, when I am sick there are products on the market to help keep me comfortable during my worst times. Here in Massachusetts, Shaw’s Supermarkets carry an exclusive line of effective and affordable products known as Signature Care™. Shaw’s Supermarkets’ Signature Care™ Cough and Cold products are exactly what I needed to help me get over my nasty cold & cough. The Signature Care ™ line offers a variety of products and provides the same quality and relief that national name brands do, but at a better value.
These pharmacist-recommended products contain the same active ingredients and are subject to the same manufacturing standards mandated by the FDA as national brands. This is exactly why I prefer this line over the top names.
Since we mainly get colds with that persistent cough that never seems to end, we typically keep cough drops, daytime/nighttime meds, and cough syrup well stocked in our pantry. Due to just getting over a batch of colds, we were low on supplies so I picked up some: Signature Care™ Cough Drops Honey Lemon, Signature Care™ Cold & Flu Liquid Daytime and Nighttime, and some Signature Care™ Cold Medicine Nighttime Cherry.
A good way to hopefully try to keep your immune system boosted is to eat fresh and organic whenever possible.
While this cannot completely prevent illness, it can help your body fight off nasty bugs sooner!
Start your day with this quick, easy, and inexpensive Organic Berry Smoothie to keep your body nourished.
What are some ways you fight off nasty germs? Have you tried the Signature Care™ line of cough and cold products?
